How to Ride the Waves of a Mid-Life Catharsis

Hello Beautiful Soul,

I am working with a friend and new client who is at a place in life (mid-life CATHARSIS time!) where he knows he needs to exit from current career (he has known it for a while), BUT it pays well and he has a family to take care of and so he feels paralyzed and burned out.

Sound familiar? It does to me. I was just there a few years ago. And I had an amazing business and life at the time. BUT still, I had been pushing so hard for two decades, I needed rest. 

So what is a grown ass adult with a mortgage to do in this situation?

Here is what I did and what I told him as well as other countless clients over the years. 

Hopefully it will help you when your mid-life catharsis arives. 

Be Grateful for This Time of Confusion

You are definitely in a soul searching place. Congratulations on listenting to the voice inside you that said it is time for a change.

Some questions to ask yourself to figure out what is next are: 

 – What did you love to do when you were little? 

 – What would you do every day for happiness if money were not in the equation?

But Money Is Part of the Equation

Now, I know money is part of the equation, but we all have to figure out our happy place of passion first and then we can go about monetizing it into a business or even doing the passion in someone else’s business.

Think of This as a Time for Realignment Now That You are Older and Wiser

Most of us have been brought up to put the money first in our lives. 

We believe often very consciously that making money at a passion isn’t possible.

This belief blocks people and leaves them feeling paralyzed and burned out. 

The first step I suggest for people is having a “in the meantime” job that you can handle that allows you more freedom than current job and still pays the basic bills.

This type of job is perfectly flawed while you figure it all out and research your options.

Option 1, working for another in new passion or Option 2, starting a business in the new passion.

Either way, good look and let the catharsis begin!

Creatively Yours,

Sweet Spot Program Applications Are Here – One Spot Left

Hello Beautiful Souls!

This is a quick courtesy email to let you know that in 10 days (July 1), I will never offer my Sweet Spot Coaching program ever again. I have 12 high-level clients this year in this program and also the next one above this program called the Quantum Leap Program

Starting July 1st, I will not offer the Sweet Spot Program again. So if you have been thinking about coaching with me in the future, you should take a moment and look these programs over and possibly fill out an application to apply for the very last spot in the Sweet Spot Coaching Program while you can. This is literally your last chance to ever coach with me at this price and receive so much life-changing support!

 

Here is what it included in the Sweet Spot Coaching Program:

Planning Phase

arrow_right_11-20110809174217-000221 LIVE or VIRTUAL Strategic Planning Day

Meet with Sheree in her San Antonio office and she will spend 6 hours mapping out and strategically planning the next year for you each time. As you and Sheree work on your business, she physically maps out on giant post-it notes everything from timelines to project brainstorming to a complete to do list for you when you return home. The first meeting happens right away so that you are ready to launch your website and company ASAP with the goal of hitting six-figures within 12 months. You can also break the planning session up into 2, three hour virtual sessions, but Sheree highly recommends the in-person meetings because you will get more out of the meeting in the same room vs. over the phone. Sheree is also well connected and having an “in-person” connection for years to come will be an asset to you and your business. Relationships are the foundation of a successful business.

 

Implementation Phase

arrow_right_11-20110809174217-00022Network Building Academy Curriculum *30 Workbooks/Videos*

Every coaching client receives the Network Building Academy Video/Workbook Self-Paced Program. This program is the foundation curriculum that Sheree will refer you to as she coaches you in this program. These 30 videos and workbooks cover everything you need to know over your career (start-up to multiple million dollar advanced strategies).

 

arrow_right_11-20110809174217-0002212 Strategic Hour Long Monthly Calls

Meet with Sheree one-on-one over the phone 1 time a month for 12 months to discuss roadblocks as well as ask advice before you take that next important step in your business. Sheree will also introduce you to key people and resources that you need to be successful. If you make a full-payment for program, there are two extra emergency bonus calls for you to use at your request. In business, the mindset stuff is what will often get in your way. Sheree will be able to meet you right where your mind is at by listening intuitively to your questions and concerns.

 

arrow_right_11-20110809174217-00022Private Email Feedback

EVERY WEEK you can send Sheree an email requesting email feedback on anything that you need advice on. She can answer a specific question, give you a resource, or look at a product or service that is in development, etc.

Free Opportunity to Be A Case Study In My Next Book Plus More Opportunities

Hello Beautiful Souls,

Even though I am officially in summer mode, there is still a lot going on under the umbrella of ShereeKeys.com.

(By the way and totally off topic… did you see we have a real live office these days?!)

Anyway, the reason I am writing is because I wanted you to know about a few opportunities that are happening right now that I wanted you to know about. 

1) If you are running an association, network, institute, or academy… I am gearing up to interview YOU for a case study for my next book. Email info@shereekeys.com with any questions you have about the book and to let us know you are interested. Being in this book will be huge for your business because thousands and thousands of people download my free PDF versions of my books each year and purchase them in print on Amazon. This book will be in PDF format for free at my company, Network Building Academy and then at Amazon too.

and

2) Starting very soon (probably by end of July), I will be closing down my Sweet Spot Coaching Program forever. Check out both of the current programs at the link below. I only have room for a few more clients right now in my schedule. There will be a big launch in Fall for the Quantum Leap Program since most of my current clients will transition into another program with me or move on to coach with another mentor, etc. at the end of the year. Here are the details in case you want to take advantage of the Sweet Spot opportunity. AND it really is a Sweet Spot opportunity as I was only able to offer it this one year. It is affordable for everyone that is building a bus iness and I am really amazing at what I do – that is the Sweet Spot for sure! I change peoples lives forever. And I am grateful for my gifts of course. But I do need to change things up again for next year because of new opportunities coming my way. And I only coach/consult one day a week so there is always limited space in my schedule for real live people. I tend to have anywhere from 12 – 20 high-level clients a year. If you interested in the details, applications are here:  http://www.shereekeys.com/coaching (Feel free to send my assistant an email to set up a 20 minute “get to know each other” meeting if you would like. You must send in the application first though so I can learn about you before we get on phone.)

Take care and talk soon,

LOVE SHEREE

The Three M’s and Why No One Talks About One of Them

With all my customers/clients, I focus on teaching them/supporting them with the three M’s.

Mindsets, Marketing, and Models (as in Business Models).

You see a lot out there on Mindsets and Marketing but hardly anything on Business Models.

People just naturally gravitate to the service-based business model because they don’t know any better or they aren’t exposed to anything else. And honestly the service-based business model is the kiss of death as an entrepreneur.

It is just creating JOB where you now work more hours without health insurance!!

I don’t see a lot of people being honest about this with their clients, perhaps because some of them haven’t even realized it themselves.

If you want to learn more or see how my company helps people in these areas, here are some free books and paid programs and services below that hold the space for you should you want to learn more about the M’s or even delegate them.

 

1) MODELS Free book on Membership Based-Biz Model (www.networkbuildingacademy.com/blog -it is in the header)… there is also a full 30 Video program that teaches the three M’s and so so much more here.

2) MINDSETS If you struggle with your mindsets (who doesn’t? And you can’t afford a coach this year, then take my very popular Mindset course. www.shereekeys.com/mmmm-ecourse

3) MARKETING If you already have a business but for love of all that is business, you can’t consistently market what you created, then it is time to delegate it: www.shereekeys.com/marketing-packages

To your success,

Sheree
